Got this picture behind my house in town. Unfortunately I think the batteries were low in the camera so the picture is pretty dark.

Sorry pretty poor picture in the thread, a little more visible on my monitor. Hind leg and tail in the upper left of this picture.

Really tough to tell, but I can see a tail and hind in the second pic.

I can see the outline on my computer on both pics....if I was a betting man I would say it`s a lion. The 2nd pic clearly shows his hind leg, ass and tail.

That`s according to what you presented.

Wold

I'll second the Wold. Probably a juvenile.

That's Lou taking a dump. And that's not his tail.

I know! It's a night time view of the inside of someone's house who lives in California and was lucky enough to be "chosen" to participate in the enormously popular Green Energy "rolling blackouts"!

You can see it better in the pic ahunter76 posted and it could be a coyote, but maybe a cat. Hard to tell with the pic quality

Thanks for the input guys. From what you can see of the tail it's not bushy like a coyote. I've got lots of deer around, a few bears and a bobcat on cameras right behind my house. This would be the first lion. Then there's the neighbors house cat. Maybe it thinks it's a lion. lol (gives some perspective on the height of the stump anyway)

Very very very small puma Or an average size house cat.

If its a lion it as a tail issue. House cat.

What if it's a house cat that IDENTIFIES as a lion? I mean, who are we to assign species??? Let's get over our speciephobia.

From: TrapperKayak

Did they name their cat Cecil? I like the hot dog with mustard comment. That one is the most accurate description (of the stump).

From: Scoot

Definitely a wold. I'd guess it's a western wold, but it's tough to say for sure with that pic. It may be a brush wold too, assuming it's in Colorado, but they tend to migrate to the north-southeast by this time of year, so knowing when the picture was taken would help. If the date on the camera is right (seems about 1/2 of the time 85% of the dates on wrong on internet posted pics) it probably rules out the brush wold, unless you've had an unseasonably warm fall.

I need to be more careful where I take a leak. Damn cameras are everywhere now..
